How much will I need to pay for the program as a special session student?

MS in Data Analytics degree requires ten 3-unit courses. A special session class costs $750 per unit, irrespective of “resident” status.  The total cost of tuition is $22,500; the cost of taking three 3-unit courses in fall 2019 is $6,750.  Note: Enrollment in additional academic internship/CPT courses will be additional, assessed at the per unit rate.
The California State University system takes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory system wide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory system wide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 – 66028.6 of the Education Code).
